Is Homosexuality a Mental Illness?
Pathology of Being Gay
As a result of very limited, highly controversial and tainted research minor opposition to the the classification of homosexuality as a mental disorder arose. Some such as Dr. Nicholas Cummings one of the primary movers in having Homosexuality declassified as a mental Illness and author of the proposal to remove it from the DSM  made the following admission ...
'I made the resolution that being gay was not a mental illness, that it was character logical .... I also said with that, that the APA, if it passes this resolution, will also vote to continue research that demonstrates whatever the research demonstrates. Unbiased, open research.'
Dr Cummings, is a true scientist and a firm believer in Scientific Objectivity, which is a basis of all science, or at least its supposed to be.
Objectivity is a basic philosophical concept, related to reality and truth. Objectivity means the state or quality of being true even outside of a subject's individual biases. Scientific Objectivity is a value that informs how scientific studies are conducted and how scientific truths are arrived at. It is the idea that researchers, in attempting to uncover truths about the natural world, must aspire to eliminate personal biases, emotional involvement, etc . Today, it is nowhere to be found in the APA.
Scientific Objectivity has been swept under the carpet of convenience and completely forgotten. Since at least the Mid 90s leftist Ideology rules at the APA. Cummings has stated that its members are cherry picking results to fit their Agenda. As per Cummings 'the gay rights movement sort of captured the APA.' 
Altering The Facts
The American Psychiatric Association declassified homosexuality as a mental disorder after years of political pressure from gay activists and under the limited weight of tainted and poorly implemented studies. The American Psychiatric association board of trustees passed this decision followed by a statement which listed among the reasons for their decision as changing social norms and growing gay rights activism . So basically, a scientific institution was coerced into changing a scientific opinion or classification due to political pressure and false evidence!?
The only scientific evidence cited when passing the resolution to declassify Homosexuality as a mental illness was based on studies by Alfred Kinsey, who admitted that he flubbed his results and Dr. Evelyn Hooker.
Dr. Hookers work is covered more extensively in a separate article : Dr. Evelyn Hooker Prostituting Science
The removal of homosexuality from the American Psychiatric Associations Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders was a serious mistake one of the voices that screamed this out at the time was Dr. Charles Socarides.
Charles Socarides - Voice of Reason
Socarides wrote that classical male homosexuality generally develops in the first two years of life, "caused by a controlling mother who prevents her son from separating from her, and a weak or rejecting father who does not serve as a role model for his son ... "
Socarides reported that "about a third" of his patients became heterosexual after treatment. He taught Psychiatry at Columbia University and the State University of New York Downstate Medical Center, and was Clinical Professor of Psychiatry at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, New York City, from 1978 to 1996.
Dr. Nicholas Cummings
Nicholas Cummings was one of the primary movers in having Homosexuality declassified as a mental Illness back in the 70s.In fact, he wrote the proposal to remove it from the DSM.
Dr Cummings, is a true scientist and a firm believer in Scientific Objectivity, which is a basis of all science, or at least its supposed to be. As time progressed and more viable evidence proved homosexuality to be a mental malady, Cummings changed his stance and recanted his opinion that Homosexuality was not pathological. Cummings has stated that its members are 'cherry picking results' to fit their Agenda. As per Cummings the gay rights movement sort of captured the APA.

Pro-Gay Laws Based on Fallacies
New Jersey has a law that prohibits juveniles from receiving counseling to overcome unwanted same-sex sexual attractions, behavior, or identity. This law could actually empower the state of New Jersey to remove children from their homes, and families if they attempt to thwart the homosexual agenda according to the bills sponsor. New Jersey Gay Democratic Assemblyman Timothy Eustace, called change therapy child abuse and proposed the government take away children seeking change from their parents. This law is modeled after a similar law in California  which has also been challenged. Pennsylvania, Washington State, Massachusetts, and the District of Columbia have introduced similar legislation.
